    was a great success and the Proxflyer got a lot of attention.

  • The Proxflyer, equipped with a wireless color video camera, Friday 8/15/03
    performed what is believed to be the first ever controlled flight where the
    pilot operated the helicopter solely by looking at a large videoconferencing
    screen displaying the pictures from the helicopter. The pictures were
    transmitted to the remote location by TANDBERG video conferencing.
    The Proxflyer performed two successful flights of approximately 1 minute.
    Each flight included: Take off, forward flights, turns and a controlled
    landing. During one of the flights, the pilot at the remote end, purely by
    observing the pictures coming from the Proxflyer were able to discover and
    recognize a person coming into the room where the flight took place.
    The Proxflyer had no form for guiding or flight control system (no gyro).
  • As part of the plan for commercial development, a patent application
    covering the concept and control principles as well as different ways to
    implement it, is filed in Norway and will soon be extended world wide.
